here. the billy buster on an issue is not the same as seating a member in the united states senate regardless what have's going on in the senate. there is a process that unfolds. the secretary of state does what at the need to do, the senate does what it needs to do. and the fact that they've already made it very clear that we will be on structure had this process, that we will change the rules in order for us to get our way in the senate to me is not what the voters are going to the polls about. >> so you're saying they're trying to do something illegal? >> illegal is left for lawyers to decide. what i'm saying is that there is a process. and when you have congressman wiener and others saying our job will be to delay and obstruct this process, in order to speed it up if we can do that, to me goes counter to what the voters in massachusetts are doing. they are expects they'll elect a united states senator and they expect that senator to be seated in a timely fashion and if that doesn't happen, a lot of weight on the democrats' head in washington. >> and just so you understand what
that of the united states. it is the highest rate of hiv infection in all of the americas. as you have seen from the devastation, the country's infrastructure ranks among the worst in the world. before the quake the country was still trying to recover from four different hurricanes that hit in 2008 and killed 800 people and left about 500,000 people homeless. let's go over now to maggie for more. >> thank you, harry. joining me is pras michel, cousin of wyclef jean, and they have traveled on several humanitarian missions to haiti. good morning. i know you have family in haiti, so i have to ask, have you been able to reach them? are they all right? >> most of my family is in north america but the very few that were down there, we were ant able to get in touch with them. i spoke to a very good close of my friend this morning right before i came here and she was explaining to me what happened down in haiti. >> tell me, because you've traveled to this country many times on humanitarian missions. this is a country that even before this disaster needed great help and great attention from the world. >>
, food, medicine and shelter we have. the united states military has helped to make the airport operational, haitian government has recovered its decision making ability. we'll still cleaning out the u.n., our building where i was working. we still have a lot of people under the rocks, but i'm confident a lot of them will be found alive. we've got to keep doing that. so the main hinge is you're going to see every day the capacity to organize this will be better, but mean while, you have more and more people who haven't had any sleep for two days, haven't had any food, haven't had any water. and they're walking around at night with no lights organization stepping over bodies living and dead. in this environment, the most important thing all the rest of us can do is give even small amounts of cash for food medicine water and for shelter. and we're also trying to do a little bit for protection. and we're getting the capacity is building up now. >> mr. president, someone suggested there's to need for donations, that people have already paid for whatever ne
of the united states. so this guy, richard reid, certainly changed his tune from that subdued man that we first saw. not to say that abdulmutallab will did the same thing, but i got to say, it would not be surprising. >> and some controversy about whether there should have been handled in a criminal court versus a military tribunal. what was the right decision? >> the critics have been saying that he's a terrorist and he should not be getting a lawyer who will tell help that you have a right to remain silent. but he was picked up here on u.s. soil. i think this is getting a little bit confuseded with the much more controversial issue to bring those 9/11 plotters, the top plotters in the attack on the united states, the world trade center and the pentagon into the united states. they've been held down at guantanamo bay, they've baby going through these military tribunals, the obama administration has decided that khalid shaikh mohammed, the master minld, should instead be brought here into this country and get a regular trial. that's a very different decision than just putting someone into a fed
to the united states? >> it was an in-describable experience. we can't -- it was long and tiring. but we made it and we're here and we can't really describe what we went through. it was difficult. >> p.j., are you still hopeful that your four missing friends and the into faculty advisers will be found, that potentially they could be somewhere on the eye island or in the dominican reabout public somewhere? >> yeah we are very hopeful. we were there. we were right by the hotel until the next afternoon. and we saw people being pulled out and alive and we keep hearing stories and we know -- i mean we have the faith, we'll keep the faith that they're going to be okay. and this is not going to be a success story up we have our other four students and our intotwo teachers back. and we are all praying that that is a big possibility. >> do you have anything that -- you were in haiti for two days. you were there on a hugh man tear yap mission. anything you'd like to say to the people of haiti to try to help them pull through this? >> playerrayer. prayer is the biggest thing that kept
, for instance, somehow in the future united states forces chasing al qaeda in to a place like yemen? >> possibly with small numbers of u.s. troop, the special forces team using drones. but the real policy is to partner with the local government. to put it bluntly, we can't occupy the world. we can't occupy afghanistan. we're not allowed in serious ways in to pakistan. we can't go into yemen and somalia and everywhere else. instead, we have to try to build up the capacities of these governments, but that's a long and ticket and in the end incomplete effort. >> and elizabeth palmer just said we'll double our money, put double down in yemen. if there really isn't much of a government there, how wise is an investment like that? >> it's a wise investment, but we shouldn't expect complete success. so we'll guild up some capacity, we'll have to do some more things ourselves, but think of it this as like fighting disease. every once in a while you make some progress, but you never eliminate the virus. you're not going to eliminate yemen as a place where the virus of terrorism exercises itself. >> let's
outpouring by the international community, china, the uk, france and, of course, the united states. but in a country that had really relatively no governmental infrastructure to begin with, coordinating these efforts is a herculean task. and i think adding insult to injury, the heavy duty pier and the crane that would be used to off load much of the humanitarian aid, both of those were destroyed in the earthquake. >> thank you so much for your report. take care over there. >>> now here's maggie. >> as we just heard katie report, even though it's been a day and a half since the quake, people are still trapped inside buildings, underneath rubble. there are bodies in the streets and medical care throughout haiti is scarce. early show national correspondent jeff glor is in haiti, as well, and he has spent some time talking to victims in port-au-prince. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. i wish we could tell you it was better this morning, but from our vantage point, it is certainly not. people are just starting to get up this morning. nearly all of them sleeping outside la
water and we are gradually getting shipments of medical supplies from the united states as these planes land several times during the day, they are coming in about every three or four hours from the university of miami system to our mobile hospital. but at this point, estimates are that there are less than 1,000 medical personnel on the ground here, including doctors, nurses, paramedic, people trained in trauma and war casualties. that is not enough. there are places where they have 2,000 patients and literally five or less doctors and nurses. so the need for those medical personnel is extreme. >> we are happy for the people on the ground there that you are you able to be there to help out, but as you mentioned, so many more are needed. jen, thanks for being with us this morning. and stay with us, we'll have much more right here on "the early show" as we continue. og ññ >>> over a million people in this country right now who claim haitian ancestry and for those relatives still in haiti, understandably the last four days have been especially excruciating about sglp the waiting on wor
